“A quaint place away from the main strip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013 via mobile

Don't let the title fool you. Grindelwald is a small mountainside village so nothing is really far from the center unless you have to trek through a lot of snow. We stayed in room 223 which faces the Eiger (amazing)! The room was clean and met our basic needs. There was no refridgerator but in winter just put your drinks on the balcony and it's just as good : ) A continental breakfast is provided as well as WIFI. If you are looking for a quiet place with easy access to mountain activities this is a good choice.

this is a great place to stay,away from all the crowd, in the foothills of snow covered alps.....facing the famous eiger peak. simple but very warm place, great staff,very friendly and informative. rooms are cozy but not so large...very clean. the room i stayed was no 324,is a large room with balcony,with a pantry. good parking area. the restaurant and bar and simple but elegant. there is a small church in front of the hotel. local buses ply during the day time. a nice hide away among mountains. the famous jungfrau is not so far. you must stay atleast 2-3 days if you want to enjoy this place. enjoy free wifi in rooms

Room Tip: if you are staying longer ask for apartment rooms with pantry and a lobby.

Stayed at the hotel in June 2012... I have to say that is was the best experience that we had... the hotel has a fantastic view of the glacial beauty of Swiss Alps... it also was just a 10 minute walk away from the lovely riverside... situated in the quaint town of Grindelwald.. it is only an hour away from Interlaken... where all the adventure sports are hosted... The hotel itself has an excellent staff, great food and cozy rooms.. we had the bestest time at this hotel... although we do not ski I am sure this will be heaven for the skiiers..

Must recommend for a relaxing stay..

Room Tip: Get room on the second floor upto 25 #s... these are facing the mountains...the others have only a s...

Hey peeps!
Well my partner and i arrived at the hotel around 11pm after a long transfur in the dark (boring) we where dropped at the sunstar and then taken by taxi to the hotel?? why i dont know? our crystal rep showed us to our room and even got us some milk after i said i was in need of some coffee, job well done by them me thinks!
the next morning my partner went for his early morning vitamins (marboro lights) to be confronted by the biggest mountains both of us had ever seen they seem to rise from the carpark! shock wasnt the word! oh and if you look to your right as people have mentioned and seemed concerned about there is a cemetery. all the people there seem friendly enough didnt say much and moved even less! what people dont like about cemeterys i have no idea, an invasion of the body snatchers? a real life thriller dance? who knows?....... back to the hotel.....
rooms where fine very 1980s travel lodge same layout too, the bathroom hmmm tiles tiles n more tiles but the pattern could keep you busy finding a path from one side of the room to the other while you where "busy" :-)
food: same everyday but all good, 3 types of cold meat 3 of cheese 4 of cereal, bread, juice, yogourt ect usual morning foods oh and a choice of tea or coffee.
as the dude below mentioned you could and can ski back to the hotel all be it 20m but whos counting, but if you got the speed right and your angle down the runs you could no doubt end up in the carpark? we only skied back to the hotel once rather icy in some parts theres me ooooh pretty mountains oh look a tree! is that a mountain goat i spy? then bang! ice and a rather long row of the naughty words! but all fun fun fun!
also you can use the pool for free at the sports center and a hotel round the corner the hotels is loads better plus they have a hot tub sauna and loungers to have a nice lil snooze.
hmm what else to say about the hotel...... salt! they need salt going into the carpark its a canny hill down and round to the hotel theres my partner minding his own and whoops down on his butt (lil chuckle inside from me) then the next day karma got its own back and i took a tumble skiis got thrown as i fell hip nice n bruised :-(
all in all a good hotel but if i ever went back id take some salt n sprinkle as i go ta ta for now travelers! :-)))

We've just returned from a week's skiing trip. The Residence was a super base - a short 2 minute trip on the bus to the Firstbahn lift and a 5 minute walk to the town centre - you could almost ski back to the hotel from a blue run from the First area!
The room was a good size with plenty of storage and a decent sized bathroom with a shower with good water pressure - perfect after a hard day on the slopes. Although we were in a north facing room the view from the window was still good.
The hotel is very clean and has friendly staff. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with the usual continental breakfast in abundance (we took our own teabags to supplement the dreaded Lipton yellow Label tea bags).
The ski room and boot room with boot-warmers were just right and every morning we had nice dry boots.

We had not been told that the hotel provided pickup and delivery between hotel and station. Unfortunately we did not find this out until we had dragged our bags up steep hills.
Breakfast was good and rooms were reasonable.

Rooms are standard. Cleaned once a day. Only breakfast is available (bread, sliced cheese and ham, tea / coffee, juices, jams, muesli). Hot breakfast is not seen. The restaurant is usually only works as a bar. View from the window at the mountains. One big disadvantage: CEMETERY is located 20 meters away from the hotel !!! It wasn’t mentioned in reviews at all ...
